Scholars will take the lead in many of the intellectual and extra-curricular activities of the whole School – and it is here, and in the Houses, that they learn how to use and mix their special gifts with those of others. It is vital that the scholarship process should encourage and reward attitudes to learning that will above all set standards for others. We believe that scholarships should not reward talent alone but should also take into account an individual’s independent potential and ability to maintain an eager, open-minded attitude to learning. It is important that Scholars should consistently achieve high standards during each year. For all scholarship applications a full report from the candidate’s school will be requested.
Candidates may apply for more than one scholarship.
It should also be noted that all scholarships are tenable throughout the holder’s career at Stowe, subject only to the Headmaster’s satisfaction with the holder’s industry, performance and behaviour. All scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Scholarships and Bursaries Committee.
